Photomediations Machine is a curated online space 
where the dynamic relations of mediation as 
performed in photography and other media can be 
encountered, experienced and engaged.

Photomediations Machine adopts a process-based 
approach to image making by tracing the 
technological, biological, cultural, social and 
political flows of mediation that produce 
photographic objects. Showcasing theoretical and 
practical work at the intersections of art and 
mainstream practices, Photomediations Machine is 
both an archive of mediations past and a site of 
production of media as-we-do-not-know-them-yet. 
Photomediations Machine is non-commercial, 
non-profit and fully open access.

Curated by Joanna Zylinska and Ting Ting Cheng, 
Photomediations Machine has an International 
Advisory Board which includes Katherine Behar, 
Lisa Cartwright, Alberto López Cuenca, Asbjørn 
Grønstad, Richard Grusin, Sarah Kember, Max 
Liljefors, Melissa Miles, Nicholas Mirzoeff, 
W.J.T. Mitchell, Luiza Nader, Nina Sellars, 
Jonathan Shaw, Katrina Sluis, Marquard Smith, 
Hito Steyerl and Bernadette Wegenstein. It is a 
sister project to the online open access journal 
Culture Machine (http://www.culturemachine.net), 
established in 1999.
